Once known for its “snug harbor,” the Magnolia district of Seattle, Washington is a quaint peninsula neighborhood with ample green space and beautiful views of Puget Sound. It’s rumored that the name Magnolia is a result of Captain George Davidson mistaking the bountiful madrona trees as magnolia trees. Well, we all make mistakes and without them where would the good stories and jokes derive?!
Magnolia Boasts Green Spaces
Magnolia is a hidden gem! If you are new to the neighborhood or an interested passerby, there are many great options to explore. To begin, Magnolia is a great place to get out and enjoy the fresh air. Discovery Park is 534 acres of open space to benefit local wildlife and natural habitats, biological conservation and education, and the peaceful enjoyment of community members. Be sure to stop by the Discovery Park Environmental Learning Center for trail maps and educational opportunities to learn about the Indigenous land, people, and culture.
As you make your way across the park don’t forget to swing by the West Point Lighthouse, Discovery Park Beach, and Magnolia Bluff. The expansive park is an amazing resource of outdoor space, perfect for the leisurely stroll, daily run, quiet meditation, or picnic.
Looking for a place to let the kids run free? Magnolia has several playgrounds including Discovery Park Playground, Ella Bailey Park, Magnolia Playfield, and Bayview Playground. Need to let the dogs out? Head over to Magnolia Manor Park, a leash-free dog park and open space. Help Magnolia keep the parks and green spaces enjoyable by planning ahead to leave no trace!

Although primarily green and residential space, Magnolia has a handful of tasty eateries in the area known as the Village.
